Holds office U.S. Senate

Comments

"Early voting has started, and I encourage Arkansans to vote NO on Issue 4. Easy access to marijuana will be bad for safety, health, and quality of life in our state. The unintended consequences aren’t worth the risk." (Twitter, October 2022)

"Bishop Anthony Taylor, on behalf of the Diocese of Little Rock, is right about the consequences of recreational marijuana. I appreciate  his leadership and join him in encouraging Arkansans to vote NO on Issue 4." (October 2022)

"Arkansans should know legalizing recreational marijuana isn’t the “win-win” its supporters promise. Learn more about the negative consequences for minors, safety, and more at http://safeandsecurecommunities.com, and join me in voting NO on Issue 4 this November." (Twitter, September 2022)

 

"It's unclear what impact this would have on Arkansas. Senator Boozman is waiting to see the guidance issued by DOJ on this issue," noted Sara Lasure, spokeswoman for U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark."

Boozman said there "are some legitimate cases where marijuana would be helpful," but said in other states the medical marijuana laws have resulted in a "free-for-all" in which doctors prescribe marijuana for any ailment.

"The mail I get is very much opposed at doing this (medical marijuana) at the federal level," Boozman said.
